    Curios and Curiosities

    From John Hancock to Head of the Peacock, Wheaton College's 175 years are steeped in history and tradition. Borrowing from the "bits and pieces" model of the scrapbook, Curios and Curiosities is an exhibit intended not to provide a linear timeline of the entire 175 year lifetime, but instead to use some of the treasures and oddities in the Gebbie Archives to illustrate specific episodes and people important to the college.

    Cabinets of Curiosities II

    Cabinets of curiosities, known in German as Wunderkammern, literally "room of wonders", became popular in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe. In many ways, they were precursors to public museums, which were first established in the seventeenth and eighteenth-centuries. The collections held in Wunderkammern were meant to be encyclopedic and to represent natural and human-made wonders from around the world. More »

    My God, This is a Hell of a Job! - Campaign Buttons through the Years

    Inspired by the hype and competition of the presidential election, we have had the opportunity to launch an exhibition of campaign memorabilia made possible through a donation from former Wheaton College Research Librarian Marcia Grimes. Her collection, which primarily consists of campaign buttons, provides insight into campaign promotions past and present. It reminds us that even the smallest pin can represent the largest ideas.

    The images, student notebooks, and other objects presented in this exhibit illustrate the study of sciences and maths from the 1830s to the present. They show that the approach to teaching the fundamentals of science and math emphasized in this exhibit has not changed markedly since Wheaton's founding. More »

    Cabinets of Curiosity: Collections from the Wheaton Community

    What do members of Wheaton's faculty and staff collect? When asked to curate an exhibition, this question came to the minds of two student employees in the Art History Department. We decided to create an exhibition that would display items from the personal collections of Wheaton faculty and staff, twenty-two of whom loaned items ranging from Buddhist scrolls to doll house families to rubber ducks.
